DATELINE: Winning is Tough, Dumb Media is Tougher
Led by ubiquitous idiot Mike Felger, Boston’s version of a sports Trump, a number of media sensation-seekers are trolling the notion that the New England Patriots are boring.
Yes, all those victories piling up are sending people off to their nap-time a tad too early to suit radio/TV bombastic bonehead Mike Felger.
You have to turn to Soren Kierkegaard for an answer: boredom is a disease of the sexually maladjusted, according to the great philosopher of Superman theory.
We humbly ask Boston fans if the Murderers’ Row of the New York Yankees was boring?
Were Red Auerbach’s basketball champions for a dozen years too boring for the Bean Town?
Was Rocky Marciano too boring because he fought a bum of the month during his reign as champ?
Was Sandy Koufax too boring with all those strike-outs game after game?
The likelihood of danger and mystery in a sports-game renders it a gamble every time and every play. You could have disaster around the cornerback. Each week we see stars go down for the count: and not everyone can manage to send the next man up to stardom. How does that create boredom?
On and on we go with media desperation.
For those bored by the recent Celtics winning streak of 16, it ended—and now the Chicken Little types will find doom and damnation on the parquet. Even the Celtics coach called their winning streak a “mirage.”
We recognize that there is much sports airtime to fill on endless sports networks, but give us a break, please.
We are not bored by experts or excellence. Mike Felger is neither expert, nor excellent—and he is on the cusp of being boring to himself.
